There's been plenty happening in the world of tech this week to keep the Twitterverse busy. Virgin Media announced it had reached the 10 million homes milestones when it comes to rolling out its superfast 100Mbps fibre broadband service, and there was also plenty of buzz about the potential release date for the public beta of Windows 8. Here's our five favourite tweets from the past seven days.
Virgin Media 100Mbps available to 10 million homes

However, the ISP has managed to get ahead of schedule and believes it will be completed this spring.
"Ok, this is impressive now - Virgin Media 100Mbps available to 10 million homes," we said in a tweet.

"If you have an Android device and love your ping pong, then you should see this. Virtual Table Tennis 3D review," we tweeted.
